Diner Reviews
  • "Have been there several times -- always a great place to eat."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We went with my parents and all seven of us really enjoyed our food and overall time. The waitress slightly spilled some wine and more than made up for it by bringing another bottle and taking it off the bill. Service like this is very appreciated. The food was good and the kids really enjoy the mussels."

  • "We used to love the garlic mashed potatoes and always got them, kind of weird, pasta and mashed potatoes? Anyway they were TASTELESS. We told our waiter they were awful, he immediately took what was left back, told us we didn't have to pay for them and admitted they changed the recipe and he didn't like them as we'll either. Great service and immediate action...just bad potatoes."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Used to be a big fan, after today may not be back. Over the years it has slowly declined. Today got the mashed potatoes-been a favorite of ours for years-they have changed the recipe. TERRIBLE. We asked about the change and confirmed they had changed it and there have been other complaints. He said he would tell the manager but the manager never came, never offered to take it off the bill. I do not get the logic of going from a recipe that was popular to what they gave us. They are the worst mashed potatoes I have ever had in a restaurant. The person who made the decision must have no tastebuds. They better rethink this. I can't get over how they could ruin something that was so good in such a huge way. Absolute fail Buca."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Buca has gone cheap with its food. (Not in prices though.) It's obvious the chain is cutting corners to save money. For example, the once delicious garlic mashed red potatoes are now instant potatoes with no garlic. It's still an ok place for large groups but overall the food is not good. What a disappointment."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Food was very good as usual. It was quiet for Friday night (early June), but that made it comfortable for conversation around a table of five. Service was attentive. I thought the prices were higher than what I remember (it's been a while) --- we spent $50 per person with two rounds of beer/wine, a round of appetizers and one desert shared by the whole group."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "We dined at Buca for my daughters birthday. She wanted Italian and mentioned Olive Garden, to which I quickly said, how about somewhere nicer. So we decided on Buca for the group dining option and fun. Great variety on the menu so it was hard to choose what to order. It was all very good, not out of this world but very good. We had great service too! "

  • "Took my 8th grade class to Buca's during our class trip. We had a great time! Manager took students on a behind the scenes tour of the restaurant, servers were helpful and spirited - asked kids to join them to sing happy birthday to another table:) and cheered the students on in a giant dessert eating contest! Food was great, too! We all walked away stuffed and happy."

  • "Kids love it and the staff are always understanding and accommodating."

  • "My family and I were in a large booth by the bar and about every 5-10 minutes, the bartender would throw a glass bottle into the trash. The sound of glass htting glass each time was ear-popping loud. Definitly not the quiet, warm atmosphre we're used to at Buca di Beppo. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We always enjoyed eating at Buca. Waitress was enquiring about our food and if we needed anything."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Service wasn't so great this time. We've dined at buca many times & have never been disappointed. Server named Rowdy brought kids dinner before our salad. He claimed the kitchen was at fault. It wasn't very busy at the time, so I doubt that. We will still go back. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "as always, the food was great. the employees are always friendly and caring"
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "A strange thing happened while we were eating dinner at Buca recently. There was a gas leak so they had to evacuate the restaurant. When we went back inside, there was a lot of confusion about what was going on and what could be served for food. We had just finished our salads and were waiting for our entree. When the waiter came back, only part of order could be served so we made the decision to leave and go somewhere else. While they were very nice, they did not offer to pick up what we had already had (just drinks and salads) until we asked. After all, we could have just left when we were sent outside (which is what I think many people did!) Also, they did not offer a coupon or anything for future dining."

  • "We stopped Friday night for dinner with a friend and had a great time. The food was amazing, staff was helpful and fun and the atmosphere entertaining. We will be back!"

  • "We went to Buca's to celebrate a family birthday which included a lot of different ages. It was perfect. The staff was fun and had a group of HS kids come and sing Happy Birthday. Cute....The food is served family style which works when you have a large group. We all said that we wanted to come back for our Birthday dinners! The food was great also. Thank you"
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "The food was excellent. I asked for some tiramisu to bring home for later, and they gave me an entire PIE! Still snacking on it. Our waiter was courteous, friendly, knowledgeable about the food, and nice. We did not feel rushed when we ate, and the restaurant was clean and inviting. We have eaten there before, and will definitely return. "

  • "This is a great place when you need a good hearty meal for a group. They were very accommodating and served us quickly. The service staff is very friendly."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We were a group of six and ordered the Apple Gorgonzola Salad, Calamari, Cheese Bread, Baked Rigatoni, and Chicken Marsala. All of it was absolutely delicious especially the salad and Marsala. I would definitely order both of those items again especially for our non-pasta diners. We had leftovers, but it felt like the right amount of food to order so everyone was able to try everything and the amount left was not ridiculous. Our waitress helped divvy it up into containers so that we all had a little of something we wanted."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Buca is a good family place. Portions are large which is a positive, however the quality of the food was extremely disappointing. The Ziti was bland, the sauce was made with velveeta I swear, no flavor whatsoever.. The Caesar salad was very good.. too many kids running around the restaurant. Very surprised that parents let their kids do that. ."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "The food was just ok. The service was just okay. The prices were higher compared with the quality of the food and service."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food and the service was great. The only complaint I have is that the table where we were sitting was on a hallway so there were quite a few people walking by very close to some of our seats."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Everything was great except there was hardly any sauce on the pasta. We order three large pasta dishes and they had very little sauce on any of them. We asked for extra and the brought us 2 small bowels of sauce? Felt like we paid 20 some $ for a bowel of noodles! Would not order pasta again. Mussels were amazing!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We had a special occasion to celebrate, great seating at a round table, and enjoyed a fabulous dinner family-style. The service was great and everyone loved it...we'll be back! Wouldn't change a thing!"
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "We had a wonderful time. Food was delicious except that the our penne vodka was super spicy which was hard for my kids to eat. The tomato sauce was the tastiest I have EVER had in a restaurant. Our server didn't seem that interested in us - we had to ask fir bread (everyone else got it automatically) and she didn't bring us extra napkins (we had children with us) and that made the night less enjoyable. I would highly recommend and come back myself. The food was worth it for sure!"

  • "Buca di Beppo is a great place to have a small office party. The food was fabulous and the service was outstanding! Will definitely be going back there."

  • "My wife and I had late evening reservations on valentines day for the Eden Prairie location. Upon being seated, we asked if we could be moved to a both as there appear to be several open and the immediate seating area. The hostess looked around at several open tables, and said there were no clean tables available. After being seated, we waited about 10 minutes before being acknowledged by a server. We again asked if we could move to a both and she said there was no problem with that and allowed to us to move to a table of our choice. About 10 minutes after that, another server came to take our order. After receiving our food, we realized there was no silverware. With no server in sight, I went to the server station to get silverware."

  • "They have valet parking which I normally pass on but here, it's needed. Get the mozzarella garlic bread! I prefer the chicken marsala over the veal marsala and now I know that."

  • "I registered bucca for valentine special dinner , after arrival without waiting we got good table, we had wine it was superb. We ordered lasania it was great, music was romantic, service was pleasant. Overall great first experience at bucca.:)"

  • "We took our 19 year old daughter there and had her Aunt from Florida there and her grandparents. The place just has a good aura about it and food and the wine give you a good satisfied feeling."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It's Family Style, meaning Fam-Friendly; we knew that going in. Since we got married at Buca (private back room, separated from the noise of the place), we have a romantic attachment there. It of course has great romantic potential (i.e. romance is kinda where families COME from). So we thought it'd be awesome for Valentine's Day. It wasn't. This is NOT fault of Buca; they were fantastic in all the ways they could be. But a family of 18 people, 3 of them 2 years or under, a mere 12 feet away, makes the Noise Level meter a joke. It wasn't "Energetic" - it was piercing. Polite parents don't take loud kids out on Valentine's Day. I never did. But if they do, Buca's a fair choice. Hence, horrible for unfortunate couples seated in same room."

  • "I have been to a Buca's before, but none of my 7 other family members that came to town. I chose this place because they wanted Italian food, and I knew they would like it, but I didn't know they would LOVE it! They loved the way it was decorated and the atmosphere, and couldn't stop talking about how great the pizza was. Would recommend this place to anyone! Very unique place, authentic Italian food, great service, and just an overall amazing experience."

  • "Service was good, although we were seated next to a screaming child which spoiled date night. Our, and another waitress, did not know soup of the day. They went to check but forgot to get back to us and by the time she remembered, we already had our dinner. Had to request refills of our soda, instead of being offered. Our order came, but mine was not what I ordered and had to be returned. Waitress forgot extra sauce we had requested at time of ordering also. Buca used to have more authentic Southern Italian and Sicilian food, but seems to have lost some spices in the past few years."

  • "We celebrated my sister's birthday here. They had signs for several special occasions to put at the table. We were by 2 other tables that had birthdays. The staff sings and claps. So fun to embarrass your loved one with a surprise birthday song! Staff was great. Food was just as I remembered it. Not too loud so we could talk."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "We had a group of 7 people gathering for a birthday dinner. All the food was very good. The food is served in sizes feeding 3 to 4 and 5 to 7 which does create a problem if everyone's tastes do not agree on what to order. You generally end up ordering too much to satisfy everyone."
